10pm Comilla's captain Tamim punches the air in delight. They have now moved to the top of the table with this 12-run victory. Pollard and Mosaddek made a fist of the 168 chase but the variations from Bravo, Hasan, and Saif were too much to overcome. We will have more on the Cooper incident soon. Do stick around with us. I will also bring you the presentation shortly.
Shakib: 167, given the batting order we had, we could have chased it eight out of ten times. But their bowlers never let us take easy boundaries. We have two more important games left, and if we do well, we will be alright.
Tamim: We should have scored at least 180, if not 200. Believing we can defend the total shows our character.
DJ Bravo, Man of the Match : It was a great team effort. At the halfway stage, we believed we win the game. Yeah, we're happy with the win. It is not an easy thing to bowl when the ball is wet. Games like these brings the best out of me, and I enjoy bowling somebody like Pollard. Cooper is a big man, and my knee is strapped up. I have a couple of days to recover.
That rounds out the Chittagong leg of the BPL. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Until next time, goodbye and good night
Sydee: "So , the equation for semis becomes quite interesting after this match . If Dhaka loses both of their upcoming matches and RK wins both , Dhaka will be out of the tournament . This BPL has shown us that 'Morning shows the day ' is not right always . SS won first 3 but they are almost out . "
Dhaka need 21 off the final over. Saif to bowl it
Nayeem: "@Ash, Lets put hand together to congratulate Tamim for his noble job instead of putting question mark on it."
Ash: "Do you think Tamim would have done the same had Pollard and Mosaddek still been batting...?"
Isam has more on the Cooper incident: "It looked like Cooper said no to Tamim's offer to continue batting, and only continued when the Dhaka coach Khaled Mahmud told him to when they briefly conversed near the boundary line."
Nayeem: "Real sporting gesture by Tamim by calling back Cooper, hats off to Tamim."
Pollard v Bravo
